If you're a fan of the hit TV series "Downton Abbey," you may have thought about incorporating elements of the Crawley family's mansion into your own home. The setting is decidedly English country, and the house — in real life, a historic estate known as Highclere Castle — is filled with antique treasures, many of which will never be available for purchase. Still, experts say there has been an uptick in interest in antiques that coincides with the popularity of the series, now in its second season.

It's been called the largest and most important art and antiques exhibition of the summer. I can't confirm that, but I can tell you that the Baltimore Summer Antiques Show is huge, beautifully designed and features the widest range of high-quality vintage and antique items for sale that I've seen anywhere. For me, attending the show is like going to a museum, but better — the items on display have been curated by hundreds of top specialists from around the world. And unlike museums, which house mostly "permanent" collections established over the course of decades or longer, the merchandise at the show represents the most current trends in art and antiques.

It's among the most iconic images of the Civil War. President Abraham Lincoln and Gen. George B. McClellan are conferring at a table erected beneath a tent a few weeks after the Battle of Antietam. McClellan looks both weary and worried. He leans forward slightly as Lincoln leans back. It's easy to see who's in charge, and it's easy to see that McClellan - who was dismissed one month later as commander of the Army of the Potomac - has an inkling of what lay in store for him. That photo was taken by famed Civil War photographer Alexander Gardner.
